1His voice
2His twinkling blue eyes
3 His broad shoulders

4 pass up a piece of chocolate
5 fold clothes as neatly as my mother
6 colour within the lines
7 back a car down a steep and windy hill
Seven words or phrases I say most often
1 No, you can’t go to Moscow. (apparently I once told my eldest he could and now if the children think I am paying too much attention to my writing, they ask)
2 Will somebody please just help (can you tell I am a mother?)
3 You can, if you just try
4 I’ll put the kettle on
5 Just calm down, breathe
6 On your bed – said to the dogs, occasionally to the children
7 It’s not a problem. I have the time. It will get done.

I nominate Donna Alward, Nell Dixon, Sela Carsen

You're terrible. I'll probably do it later on tonight or tomorrow. BTW, can I go to Moscow? ;)
